When going on an adventure, you really want to absorb as much of it as you can, and remember as many details as you can after. That's why travelers are constantly collecting passport stamps, coins, fridge magnets, and photos from their journeys. Some, however, choose to honor their wanderlust with memorabilia that lasts longer - meaningful tattoos. Bored Panda has a compiled list of some of the best travel tattoos out there to give you some ideas if you're looking for alternative ways to immortalize your lust for new experiences.

From a contrail heartbeat to exact coordinates of a place that touched your soul forever, these tattoo designs were created for hardcore backpack fans, and these creative tattoos will definitely inspire you to pack your bags. From large scale to small tattoos, there's a choice for everyone's liking. Scroll down to check out the awe-inkspiring tattoo ideas below, and if you don't want to limit yourself to land and sea, we've gathered an awesome unique tattoo ideas on cosmos list too!
